Retronesia brings back the Jengki hits

I’ve mentioned by pal Tariq Khalil  before, and now his work is for sale in a beautiful collection of photographs of so-called Jengki architecture of mid-century Indonesia. Part American Googie, part tropical modern, and 100% Indonesia’s signature blend of mashed-up influences, Jengki is a wonderfully playful style that is fast disappearing under the sprawl of our late population explostion/hyper-consumer global civilization. Tariq’s book goes far in bringing attention to this long negelcted style and documenting valuable examples before its too late.

Check out the interview he gave to Vice.com then buy this wonderful collection! https://www.vice.com/en_id/article/mbx7mx/photos-of-indonesian-buildings-from-the-50s-the-dangdut-of-architecture
